There can be few clubs with such a history of squad rotation as Pompey.
This summer, as with the past 2-3, I would suspect that 'most' will be wondering where their future lies.
Although unlike some other years some players under contract at least 'should' have a better chance of remaining where they are, as long as this is what they want!
If this is what they want, and it is a financially viable option for us, lets hope this is what they get...
#20 Joel Ward
What a season the guy has had, a shoe-in for the young player of the year and arguable the top away too!
Not bad for a guy I suspect had no future at the club, or little in terms of the participation he would have, had it not been for the fact that there was a necessity for Steve Cotterill to play him - and I really do think it was that necessity that saw him picked. A chance was taken and that, for me, prevented him from following in the footsteps of just about every other youngster that had been at the club 12-months prior...
Central defender is where I saw his future, although a short spell on the right hand side - usually as a right back - looked as though that is where he looked at home. It has been his spell in central midfield that has seen him excel though.
Given some extra strength and stamina work I reckon we have a box-to-box midfielder in the Bryan Robson mould on our hands.
With Joel contracted and at his hometown club, unless we get such an offer we - and he - really cannot refuse; his future will lie at Fratton...
